It has been 123 Days since Booster Gold last appeared in a DCnU comic book.

Eventually even a Superman has had enough of bank robbers throwing Kryptonite in his face. So in Superman/Batman #46, released on this date in 2008, he and Batman asked their friends to circle the globe and pick up every piece they could find.
Booster found some in Molepolole, Botswana, then tried to keep it for himself. Asking a thief to turn over something as valuable as Kryptonite probably wasn't Batman's best plan ever.

For some reason, I thought there'd be more consensus than this. As I've said before, that's why I'm never going to be a casting agent.
Last week's poll question: Which actor would make the best live-action Booster Gold? (42 votes)
We haven't seen a lot of Skeets since the New 52 reboot, but Convergence may change that. That got me wondering how important Skeets was to Booster's fans.
This week's poll question: How important is the presence of Skeets to your enjoyment of a Booster Gold adventure?

I had hoped that we might see Booster Gold (or at least a Booster Gold) in Multiversity Guidebook #1 today. However, the release of Multiversity Guidebook was delayed until next week, so there is no Booster Gold comic on the racks this week.
But don't despair. Next week we'll get Showcase Presents: Blue Beetle, which reprints Booster's few 1980s appearances in that title (specifically issues #20 and #22). So we still have plenty to look forward to, Booster boosters, even before Justice League 3000 comes out in 2 weeks.

I'm no fan of the New 52 Booster Gold costume. Too many pointless gold lines and ridiculous stylings. If you insist on adding lines to a costume, at least attempt to make them make sense. Maybe a little something like this:
Artist Darren Calvert describes this piece as "Blue Beetle and Booster Gold drawn while watching TV last night." It's a great sketch. Must have been a pretty boring television show.

DC released solicitation summaries for the first month of Convergence titles last week.
CONVERGENCE: BOOSTER GOLD #1
Written by DAN JURGENS
Art by ALVARO MARTINEZ and RAUL FERNANDEZ
Cover by DAN JURGENS and DANNY MIKI
Variant cover designed by CHIP KIDD
On sale APRIL 29 • $3.99 US
STARRING HEROES FROM CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS! Trapped with Rip Hunter and other time travelers, Booster Gold and his future self must work together to get out of prison and off the planet.
I feel compelled to point out that Booster Gold never actually appeared in Crisis on Infinite Earths. As all Booster Gold fans know, Our Hero was the first DC character to debut in the post-Crisis universe. Will that be important to this two issue mini-series? Who knows.
It's also worth noting that Rip Hunter and the Time Masters get a name drop in the solicitation for Convergence #3, but Booster is nowhere to be seen in the solicitation for Convergence: Justice League International. It's hard to imagine a JLI without Booster Gold, so I'm sure that has to be an oversight. Right?
